Home again after driving all day and it’s nice to be typing this on my own computer v. Helena’s when we were in Poland, or on my phone when we were in the car which was even awkward just for making facebook comments, but it did pass the time. I also finished one of the books I got for Christmas on the drive, The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith who is really J.K. Rowling, but I’m going to write a whole blog on that, so I’ll leave it for now.
Our only stop was at Malborg Castle, which was massive and I was surprised that it was built in the 13th century because it looked like a big hospital or factory complex from the 19th century (i.e. brick, not stone) but it was impressive nonetheless and had a huge Madonna statue embedded in one wall.
Once it got dark, we were driving along and suddenly saw a bunch of red lights in the sky and couldn’t quite figure out what they were. It was not a fireworks display, although they were at fireworks height. No, these were steadily blinking lights, quite a long line of them. Then we realized that they were wind turbines. An interesting side effect. They will save the planet, but they will make it look very unnatural. Cool, though.
That’s about it for now. Feels good to be home. Good night.
